One of the brightest new stars on the musical landscape Bri (Briana Babineaux) has entered the Top Ten of Billboard Magazine's Gospel Airplay chart with her uplifting and inspirational radio hit "I'll Be The One" that makes its mark at No. 10 this week with a bullet. The mellow anthem increased its spins by 107 or 14% over last week's numbers.
It hails from Bri's debut album "Keys To My Heart" (Marquis Boone/Tyscot Records) that debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Gospel Albums sales chart two weeks ago.
It's a busy time for the Louisiana native. Last week, a New York Times newspaper crew followed Bri to Huntsville, Alabama to photograph and interview her for a forthcoming profile piece and she has a number of upcoming television appearances that will be announced in the coming weeks. She'll also be a featured guest on the syndicated "Donnie McClurkin Show" the week of May 16th. Bri is already booked deep into the fall for concerts and is hoping to visit England in the near future.
"I hope so, I want to," she recently told British radio legend Cindy Kent via a telephone interview on the Premiere Christian Radio network in London. Bri's album "Keys To My Heart" debuted at No. 8 on Premiere's Christian Albums sales chart in the United Kingdom.
